Chicago Bulls Win Game 5 vs. Philadelphia 76ers: Series Far From Over
Tuesday’s Game 5 matchup between the Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers made one thing clear–this series is far from over.
The Bulls managed to extend the series to Game 6 after a critical 77-69 win to cut the Sixers lead to 3-2 in the series. Even without Derrick Rose or Joakim Noah in the lineup, Chicago found a way to overcome a Philadelphia squad that had won the last three games of the series and provide hope that the Bulls are alive.
Of course, the only way Chicago has any chance of advancing to the second round is if they can get similar contributions from key players for the rest of the series. Carlos Boozer (19 points and 13 rebounds), Luol Deng (24 points with a sore wrist), and Taj Gibson (eight points and seven rebounds) will all need to step it up once again if the Bulls have any chance of winning these next two games.
It certainly won’t be easy, but there’s no reason why the Bulls can’t avoid history and win these next two games against the Sixers. They are the No. 1 seed for a reason and Game 5 may have just been what this team needed to get rolling again.
